The second half of the Winter Queen sketchbook; pages are 8″ square, continued from yesterday. The last page from yesterday, with the silk and knitted wire, flips up to reveal this page with its couching samples:
This page (below) is made from woven paper strips (actually the offcuts from trimming the pages to the right size, so there was no waste) with paper ‘reverse applique’ diamonds underneath.
More paper weaving, together with some yarn weaving. I imagine the yarn weaving could be quite effective in a textile piece.
And that’s the end. Really, I will do something with this at some point. But for now it’s back to the finishing. There are still a couple of pieces left in the shop, though I hope to be adding a few more later in the month as old work is finished.
